Obama ‘Regrets’ You Didn’t Build That

Is this really a surprise? President Obama told NBC12 on Wednesday that he has “regrets” about the “syntax” of the now infamous “you didn’t build that” line. “But not for the point, because everyone who was there watching knows exactly what I was saying.” Republicans have attacked Obama for telling an audience in Virginia that “If you got a business, you didn’t build that,” but the president says he stands by his intention, which was to point out that his government has championed small business growth. There’s still a lot left to do, Obama says, but “we are absolutely better off than we were when I was sworn in and we were losing 800 thousand jobs in a month.”
